Nerdlocker Movie Review: Atomic Blonde

It is my belief that every genre has the ability to become revered based on quality and execution. Whether it’s comedy or in the case of Atomic Blonde, action, the genre should not inhibit something from becoming the best of its artform. Action films like Tak3n, Transformers (5 or 6 or however many of these […]Read More

10 CLOVERFIELD LANE: Reviewed!

When Cloverfield was released in 2008 it appeared to be just another monster movie done with headache-inducing shaky-cam; in other words it should have been forgotten before the first weekend of its premiere. But thanks to creative filmmaking by then first time director Matt Reeves and J.J. Abrams at his side this turned into some […]Read More

Movie Review: The Gambler

Movies You May Have Missed: Bringing Out the Dead (1999)

In 1999, Nicolas Cage starred in Bringing Out the Dead, directed by Martin Scorsese. A neo-noir thriller in its own right, this is truly the work of a master filmmaker. Much like in his recent directing effort, The Wolf of Wall Street, Scorsese manages to bring the audience into the mind of the film’s main […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The Hangover Part III

I think I’m in the minority when I say that I didn’t completely hate Hangover II. It’s certainly the weakest of the three but I still enjoyed it a lot. I think now I have an even greater appreciation for it as a lot of jokes in the third are only funny because of the second […]Read More
